Ahmed Rehab takes on popular right wing talk show host John Gibson on Ben Carson’s statement on Muslims.
“Won’t Back Down!” Ben Carson said Monday he could indeed support a Muslim for president — despite words to the contrary on Sunday — should they pledge fealty to the Constitution. Carson, under fire for seeming to suggest that he couldn’t support anyone who subscribes to Islam to lead the White House, issued a caveat to that position on Monday evening. In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the Republican presidential candidate said there are some Muslims who could be president if they effectively renounced their faith. CAIR has called for Dr. Carson to withdraw from the 2016 presidential race.
Gibson talked to Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of CAIR-Chicago who feels Carson is wrong. Rehab says, “An American Muslim would place the constitution above his religion”.
